Watch: Lesley Sharp features in new ITV drama Paranoid

An unusual murder rings alarm bells

Paranoid

ITV has released a new preview trailer for new eight part conspiracy thriller, Paranoid, from acclaimed writer and producer Bill Gallagher (The Paradise, Conviction, Lark Rise to Candleford).

Set in Cheshire in the small fictional town of Marshwell, Paranoid tells the story of a female GP, Doctor Angela Benton, who is murdered in a rural children’s playground with an abundance of eyewitnesses, including her three-year old son Luke and local Garden Centre owner Lucy Cannonbury (played by Lesley Sharp).

Detectives Michael Niles (Neil Stuke), Nina Suresh (Indira Varma), Alec Wayfield (Dino Fetscher) and Bobby Day (Robert Glenister) embark on what seems to be a straightforward murder investigation, but as they delve deeper into the case they are quickly drawn into the twists and turns of an ever-darkening mystery, which takes them unexpectedly across Europe.

Kevin DoyleAnjil Mohindra, Christiane Paul, Polly Walker, Michael Maloney, William Ash, John Duttine and Jason Done also feature in the drama.
